Ope Work Weekend

April 27-29, 2012

Here we are again at the Scout Camp west of Perth.  It's normally a great place to bird, but this time is was very cold, especially at night, and there were not as many birds around as usual.  Not only that, but we were working almost all the time and not birding. 

Nonetheless, we did grab a few minutes and were rewarded with a perched Broad-winged Hawk, lots of Chipping Sparrows, some Eastern Phoebes and a Belted Kingfisher.  During the work, one of the resident Ospreys came by and put on a good show, even diving into the lake to catch a fish.  At one point we could see 7 or 8 Turkey Vultures circling overhead.  Later, while teaching canoeing, an adult Bald Eagle soared over.
